I am not aware of a problem , I am simply trying to understand the revisions and whether I need to keep older versions in order to run the newer firefox

It's not necessary to uninstall anything especially since you aren't using a 4beta version. And there are some serious risks to losing important data that you store if you don't remove older versions very carefully.

If you decide that you don't like 4.0 you can easily go backwards & reinstall 3.6 without any problems (and without risk of losing data).

One point though: if you are a bookmark fiend like me, it's a really good idea to back up your bookmarks before you make any changes to firefox. I'm so obsessive that I back them up constantly (and I don't rely on FF's automatic bookmark-backup process), but that's just me being paranoid from learning the very hard way a long time ago.
